Comprehensive Bike Insurance is a 2 wheeler insurance plan that offers coverage to your bike against different types of damages, total loss, and theft. Here’s what you should know about the comprehensive policy for bikes.
The Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance Policy is a combination of a Third-party Liability Cover and Own Damage Cover for Bike (OD).
It provides coverage against accidental damages, fire, natural disasters such as flooding, earthquake, etc., and manmade disasters such as vandalism, riots, etc.
The Comprehensive Bike Insurance also covers damages caused to a third party’s vehicle or property and if somebody is injured.
At ACKO, we offer the mandatory Third-party Bike Insurance Policy, a standalone OD Cover, and the full-protection Comprehensive 2-wheeler Insurance Policy.
If you have only taken mandatory bike insurance, you can upgrade to the Comprehensive Two wheeler Insurance Policy during bike insurance renewal.
Here are the unique benefits of the Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance Policy.
Almost all types of damages to your bike are covered under the Comprehensive 2-wheeler Insurance Policy. The comprehensive bike insurance coverage includes damages caused due to road accidents and manmade and natural disasters. Vehicle theft is also covered. This apart, the policy also covers third-party liabilities.
You get a discount on the two-wheeler insurance renewal premium if you don’t raise a claim during the policy period. The discount is referred to as NCB. You can get up to a 50% discount on the Own Damage component of your bike insurance renewal premium if no claims are raised for five consecutive years.
Since most of the repair cost is compensated by this two-wheeler insurance policy, you only pay a small portion (deductibles) of the repair bill. The Comprehensive Two wheeler Insurance premium rate is considerably affordable compared to the amount you may spend on repairs, making it an ideal bike insurance cover for your vehicle.
The Comprehensive Bike Insurance Policy is suitable for all types of two-wheelers, including motorcycles, scooters, and electric scooters or bikes (e-bikes). Insuring it with Comprehensive Insurance offers wide-ranging benefits, whether it’s a scooter, motorcycle, or electric bike.
Here are the top benefits of Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance.
Opting for a Comprehensive 2-wheeler Insurance Policy gives you maximum financial protection as it covers damages to your bike and covers third-party liabilities. The bike insurance policy also covers the total loss of the two-wheeler arising from theft, fire and an accident.
The two-wheeler insurance benefits offered by Comprehensive Insurance provide legal and financial protection from third-party claims, such as injuries suffered by a third party and damages to their vehicle during an accident caused by your insured bike. This policy also covers financial liabilities caused by the death of a third party.
If you don’t file any bike insurance claims during the policy period, you receive a discount on the renewal premium in the form of NCB. The Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance for bikes is the only policy that offers this discount, resulting in maximising your savings when you insure it with the Comprehensive Insurance.
With the traffic and the number of vehicles plying on Indian roads increasing every day, the possibility of accidents rises. The Comprehensive Insurance Policy offers you peace of mind knowing that your bike is financially protected against different types of damages to your bike, even theft.

Now that you know how to calculate the two-wheeler insurance premium, you must know how the premium is determined so that you can make informed decisions. Here are factors that determine the Comprehensive Two wheeler Insurance premium.
The IDV is the approximate market value of your vehicle after considering depreciation. Your two-wheeler’s IDV is the maximum sum you receive in case of a total loss, or theft of the vehicle. Please note that the higher the IDV, the higher the premium.
The age of your bike plays a significant role in determining the cost of Comprehensive Bike Insurance. A brand new scooter or bike has a higher premium compared to older ones (due to the depreciation factor, the premium for older bikes is lower).
Generally, expensive and high-end bikes attract a higher bike insurance premium when compared to low-cost two-wheelers. Typically, high-end bikes have high maintenance and bike-part replacement costs, hence the insurance cost is higher for such bikes.
The bike insurance premium for vehicles registered in a metropolitan city or high-traffic area is higher. However, the premium for bikes registered in a remote village or town is lower since the possibilities of road accidents are lower.
The manufacturing year of your bike helps identify the bike’s age and the depreciation factor to determine the vehicle’s IDV, which reduces with time. Therefore, older bikes have lower insurance premiums than brand new bikes.
By opting for the multi-year bike insurance plan, the premium is generally lower compared to a single-year plan. A long-term bike insurance policy offers continuous insurance coverage for a long period.
When you don’t file any claims during the policy period, you receive a discount on the bike insurance renewal premium known as NCB in bike insurance. Hence, the premium can be reduced if you have accumulated an NCB.
